I'VE GOT STEEL!!!!

So the NCOIC (Noncommissioned Officer In Charge) of the Ft Huachuca SRT (Special Reaction Team, it's the military police version of a SWAT team) has a bunch of steel targets, pepper poppers and whatnot for training. They no longer use them, so I get to borrow them for as long as I need them. I am so happy.

I am going to start

a series of videos demonstrating various training drills I have used or have read about or seen. I will (hopefully) do the first one on Monday or Tuesday and post it in here. They'll be pretty crappy at first, as I have only a small digital camera to film it with, but I'll try to make it work.

How about we set that Steel up on the Mexican Border and just keep shooting South. As long as we are a foot back from the border, I don't see a prob...

New Tea Party

On Glen Beck today, the guy who did the Thomas Paine internet series says capitol security says they are throwing envelopes with tea bags away, as they are worried about controlled substances. He is saying to throw the bag away and send the string with tag.

I'm game, samD

I have no problem with that. I'm a terrible shot, so I'm sure I'll miss the steel a lot and have many, many uncontrolled rounds impact into that pisspot of a country.

Do you have the address where we can send the envelopes? or are we to send them to our representatives?

The white house won't do shit but throw them away. If you aren't Jay Leno or a basketball coach, Obama doesn't care. You can follow up directly with your representative.

Thanks, snake

Oops, I mean Snake. Should be capitalized. The SRT obviously didn't know about caliber ratings as there are quite a few 308 holes in them. They look rated for 223 and below, but they are awfully pitted. I'm going to try to take the bolts out and flip the plates so I have smooth surfaces to work with. I think my first drill will be the square drill I posted a while back. It might make more sense to start with basic drills and then move up to moving drills, but I'm not doing it to try to teach anybody anything. just to demonstrate different drills. Well, that and HOORAY, ANOTHER POINT!!! I'm a hoot.

Great about the steel

Yes, you will have to film you shooting the steel. You get all of your guys to shoot at the same time it should be good.:-) It is a lot of fun shooting steel with rifle and pistol.
